Corsetry Patterns a-go-go!

So, clever Marion (former editor at Foundations Revealed) is publishing a book… of historical corset patterns from 1900-1922! 

This is exciting. Those years are not much addressed in contemporary corsetry, and since there are 19 different patterns I imagine the book will provide a really nice overview of the changing silhouette of the time. Should be of interest to both contemporary designers and historical costumers. 

You’ll have to watch the Kickstarter video for more information. She has basically found this rare book from 1924 and is on a mission to re-publish it, better than before, with more information and a functional, simple layout. I’m especially curious about the equestrienne corset and the Parisian one-piece corset!
